Ben Klock's one of the residents at Berghain and his recent mix CD went down a treat in my ears and I'm glad to say this 12" is now doing the same. 'Compression Session 1' kicks off with nary more than a dull, thudding kick pounding away in the midrange - as though through a wall - and hints of light, twinkly synth work up above before proceeding to constantly morph and twist itself around so subtly and expertly that you almost don't notice how different the section you're on is compared to the part that was playing a minute ago.. Even though the elements have remained essentially the same. 'Static Test' kinda does what it says on the tin, with its Chain Reaction-esque stylings reminding (perhaps inevitably) of the grainy dub techno majesty of Monolake's immense 'Static'. 'Compression Session 2' comes off like a variation on the theme of the first, albeit slightly more submerged-sounding, but that doesn't make it in any way redundant. Probably the most I've enjoyed an Ostgut Ton 12" in a bit, all told.. And I usually do enjoy them a fair bit!
